Alpha
Alpha A. was born in 1969 in Anfoin and currently resides in Aklakou Fonkomé with his wife and three children. To deal with the needs of his family, he managed to open a cafeteria, where he offers quality service to his ever-growing customer base. And importantly, with this source of revenue, he is able to feed his family. Famous for the quality and flavor of his coffee, he has achieved all this through personal effort. Living adjacent to the bus station in Aklakou, Mr. A. had been quick to realize that bus drivers need coffee even very late at night. With much effort, he gathered a meager sum and then timidly began his business. Today, after six years of experience, he would like to be able to handle rush hour demands, a challenge he faces daily. To do so, he is requesting a loan of $1,000 to buy a stove, coffee cups, and other necessities to meet the expectations of his customers. The more his revenues increase, the more his family's living conditions will improve.

Translated from French by Daniel Kuey, Kiva volunteer:



Né à Anfoin en 1969, Monsieur A. Alpha réside actuellement à Aklakou Fonkomé avec sa femme et ses trois enfants. Pour subvenir aux besoins de sa famille, il parvient à ouvrir un cafétéria où il offre un service de qualité à sa clientèle qui devient de plus en plus importante. C’est d’ailleurs à partir de ce revenu que Monsieur Alpha A. nourrit sa famille. Réputé pour le goût et la qualité de son café, il y est arrivé à partir d’un effort personnel. Domicilié à coté de la gare routière d’Aklakou, Monsieur Alpha a vite compris que les transporteurs ont besoin du café même à des heures tardives. Alors il a réuni difficilement quelques maigres moyens et a commencé timidement. Aujourd’hui, après dix ans d’expérience, il souhaite être totalement à la hauteur de la forte demande qui se présente à lui quotidiennement. Il sollicite pour ce faire un crédit de $1000 pour s’acheter une cuisinière, des tasses et autres nécessaires pour satisfaire sa clientèle. Plus les revenus augmentent plus il améliorera les conditions de vie de sa famille.
